Paul Peschisolido has slammed his Burton side for keeping Albion fans on tenterhooks before eventually beating Plymouth 2-1.
Goals from in-form strikers Justin Richards and Calvin Zola at the Pirelli Stadium secured the Brewers' first home victory of the campaign, but only after Durrell Berry had hit the crossbar and Will Atkinson notched a late consolation for the visitors
Peschisolido said: "We just fell asleep in the final minutes of the game which is something we've got to eradicate. I'm disappointed with our lacklustre reaction to situations that could have changed the game.
"But on the positive side, my two strikers have done the business again. If Justin's goal had been scored in the Premier League they'd be showing it time and again. It was a magnificent goal.
"Calvin was a nuisance and took his goal well and it's great to have our goalscorers in good form. It's three points and we'll take it, although we've still got things to work on.
"They (Plymouth) were galvanised by the fact they've been paid and I know their manager is fantastic at keeping morale together."
